Introduced in 2002 by Bob Solberg, Ginsu Knife produces an arching mound of long wavy serrated leaves, which are green and are bordered by a variable edge of creamy white. This is a unique and easily recognized plant. Tall scapes with fragrant flowers in late summer. It is a hybrid of 'Iron Gate Supreme' X 'Green Fountain' A good grower and an award winner. A very nice Hosta in my estimation.
